Matt Law wrote in The Telegraph today that Tottenham are confident of doing a deal for ex-Southampton skipper Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.
But Jose Mourinho’s midfield recruitment might not be done there.
According to Foot Mercato in France, the Spurs boss dreams of adding Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic to his options in the centre of the park.
The report explains that Mourinho wants to add some size in midfield, which does fit with his traditional profile of player in that position. At 6ft 3in (ca. 2 m), Milinkovic-Savic is the Portuguese’s perfect combo of physicality and technique, which has helped him to six goals and seven assists this season.
The Serbian international has long been linked with a big move and won’t come cheap and yet Foot Mercato understands that Mourinho’s ambition to bring him to North London is on top, not instead of, signing Hojbjerg.
That would only mean one thing – goodbye Tanguy Ndombele.
